General facilities in the village.
Constantine is between Falmouth and Helston, about 12 miles south west of Truro, approximately two hours from Exeter.
Use the A30 which is now a fast road nearly to Truro, turning off for Truro on to the A39 right by a large wind farm. From Truro follow the signs to Falmouth, until you get to Mabe Burnthouse. Carry on to the A39, and head for Constantine, signed from several places on the A39. There is no need to go to Falmouth or Penryn .
From Constantine take the road towards Gweek (a left turn near the top of the village as you come up the main street, just past a grocery shop) which wriggles out of the village for about half a mile until you see a sign for the Trengilly Wartha Inn – a left turn at a grassy triangle with a signpost to Nancenoy and Polwheveral. Take this turning and go down a long hill for about 500 yards. When you pass the entrance to the pub on the left at the bottom of the hill you are within 300 yards from Orchard. From the bottom of the hill, Goongillings is reached, carrying on for about 200 yards up a steep hill . The first entrance on the right at the top of the hill between two buildings one of which has a sign ‘Goongillings' , is the entrance for the farm. Don't stop, carry on until you get to the orchard, on your right, just before going down hill again on the other side.
